Davis Cup’s Place In Mens’ Tennis

Davis Cup has always been one of my favorite events in mens’ tennis. No other professional tennis venue allows for a crowds’ energy to come remotely close to that of a soccer game. It is wonderful to see the top professionals make a concerted effort to play Davis Cup even though it would be in their best personal interest to skip such events and save their bones for the higher paying dance-offs like Roland Garros and Wimbledon. I see Novak Djokovic playing Davis Cup as a small way of giving back to his people and country, however I enjoy those indoor clay Davis Cup ties in Belgrade just as much as the Serbs do.
